GOD SAVE   THE KING I  Resolutions Passed Expressing the Sorrow of the City at the Death of  the Queen.  The council met us usual un Friday  night, nil the members being: present.

The resolution was passed by a  standing vote.  It was then resolved that this council on account of the sue! news of the  death of her Majesty the Queen do  stand adjourned until after the fun-  eiul."  THE IDLE HOUR HO. 3  Groceries  Choicest and Best that  be procured.  The Operators Now Prosecuting Vigorous Development.  Joseph C. Kit-kpati'ick and Edward  J. Ward left for the Ijldle Hour, No. 3  on Wednesday last -.to recommence  Mmie.di-velopinent- work.* '.-The' .property is staked, on the Nettie L hill,  ut the head of Two-Mile creek on the  nnt lh fork of Lai'de-tu creek, about  two and a halt' miles from Ferguson.  Along the same belt, is slaked the Idle  Hour No. 1. owned by J. Davidson, the  Idle Hour No. 2, owned by W, H,  Howaid, and the K.-iniloop.- No. 4,  owned by, Dr. (.iiTiithers ot Revelstoke. A cabin has been built, "sup  plies put in unci the Nettie L rawhiee  trail goes within a half mile of it, t hu-  makiiigit un easy proposition to mirk  tit any season of (he year. The ledge,  similar and parallel to 'the Nettie L,  one half a mile back, is made up  largely of white quartz and huge  quantities of iron pyrites, with sonic*  galena. Assays of surface s-ainples  give from a truce to $42 in gold and 2C  ozs. in silver to the ton. _ The present  work consists, of a .crosscut started  almost 'at the lower side, of the big  ledge and by the tiine they reach the  other-wall they.nill have considerable  de'pthiirt'd perhaps a'good ore body.  This will be demonstrated one way or  theothei* before spring.

The manly and untile words uttered  by, our new sovereign, King Edward,  w ill find a. warm response in the hearts  of his loyal   subjects   throughout   the  Empire.    "In undertaking the heavy  loud which now devolves upon   me,   1  am fully determined to be  a constitutional sovereign in the strictest   s*;nse  of the word, and, so   long   us there   is  breath in  my   body, lo   work   for the  good and amelioration of uiy people."  There need   be   no   misgivings   but  that   the King  will   prove   himself  ti  worthy successor of his great  mother.  In   fact   as   Prince   of Wales he gave  evidence of the possession of the  very  same great wisdom, which enabled hei  to he   the   first   really   constitutional  monarch   of   her country,   the   same  bense of grave responsibility evinced  in standing   entirely   aloof   frum   tin-  least appearance of parlizunship,  the  same immense self   effacement   in  the  perfoiinance of   the routine   duties ol  his   position.     It'  one   will   take   th.  trouble    to    conceive   the   ensiwous  temptation, which  it must have  been  for a   until   of   the lofty   position and  lat'f,e    intellectual    capat ity   of    the  Prince to stand ,by .till almost past the  prime of life in inactivity, in the  very  centre   of   the   throbbing   life  of the  Empire and refrain fro'm   giving   any  out wai d  evidence "of his powers, they  will feel convinced that he has already  given   ample    guarantee    of    specitil  qitiilificiitions for continuing the policy  of the throne so successfully inaugurated by his great predecessor.    In bpite  of   the   adnge. ���������*lhe   King reigns   but  does not govern," it lias become apparent titi moie that! one critical occasion  dining   the reign  of  Queen  Victoria  that the monarch of this great Empire  must be a gieat deal more than a mere  ornamental figmebeHd.   Her influence  was piincipally  directed   along   three  lines of policy���������Friend-hip with the U.  S.   Unity   .of     the   Empire,    ��������� Peace,  and every indication points to the fuel  that King Edward always  shared .his  royal mother's wise and noble ideas on  rhese points and   that,   these   are. the  objects,   wliich. all., lhe   weight, of bis  influence;������fld\rrifii(u*ity as "'c-ttpant-of-  the'liiiperial'lit-rbiie -will   be   lent   to  secure.' . ,    r  Jumped on the Wrong Trip  An occurrence which might have  resulted in considerable loss of life,  occurred on the mines' brunch on  S.tint day morning, A train to which  was 'attached the two mine coathe-  w.*is on its way down and had net  gone far before it got beyond the  control of the engineer. lt was his  Hist trip nn the branch und his engine  was coming down tender first as  usual. On reaching a rough piece of  road the engineer thought, the tender  hud left the truck, and after teversing  the engine ancl putting on steam he  and the fireman jumped. The brakesman soon became aware that some-  ��������� hing was wrong, and ufter applying  ���������rakes W Mclntyre went forward and'  'otmd the engine clcscited and soon  brought " the train to a standstill.  C msideiable sympathy is felt for the  engineer. He had just left the hns  pital a few c ays before, having been in  t.he wreck at. Kitchener three weeks  'go. where he was badly hurt, being  incoiiscioiis for several days. In the  Kitchenei accident he stayed with his  engine and came very near being  silled. This being his first trip on.the  mines branch which has a very, stiff  .trade, and it is uot to be wondered at  that his nerve somewhat deserted him.  Iu jumping he broke two ribs .uud is  now laid up again. The fireman was  unhurt. ���������Fernie Free Press.'  NOTE AND COMMENT.  I. A. of M.  At a meeting of Kuolenay Lodge,  1.

Revelstoke, Dec. 17, 1000.  LADIKB AND GENTLEMAN:  On and after Dec. 22nd I have  decided to cat-ny on a sti ictly cash  business in connection with laundry  work.  My reasons tor so doing are as follows:���������First���������The . accounts heing  necessarily small and numerous, an  endless amount of expense is entailed  in liook keeping and tho loss in collec-  t ions Valid the time arid attention it  requires, robs the business of what  little profit there may be in it.  ^Oui; current expenses nre cash and  nii'istjbe p.-iid when due.  ',- The.stand I have taken is one I have  heen forced into ancl hope all will help  me out in the matter. Parcels can be  left at Cresbnian'B tailor shop.

Royalty  Lodge S O.E.B.d met and the follow1  ing resolution of condolence was  drawn up to he fcrwarded to the Sii| ���������  rente Grand Lodge for transmission io  England: V --  '.'The members qf Lodge,Royalty S.  0. E. B. S. hereby, record the intense  grief felt and 'shock received by (hem  in learning of the depart nre fiom  mortal life of our dearly loved and  gracious lady Queen Victoria, who has  ascended to a heavenly crown after a  reign that tor wisdom and beneficence  and a just exercise, nf the power of a  noble und christian administration of  sovereign authority is, and ever must  rmuiiln, unequalled in the history of  mighty rulers.  The record of our dc-pai'i-ed Sovereign's glowing vh-tuesand of the tender  love Her Gracious M-ijesty bore for  her demoted subjects- of every clime,  will ever stand inscribed upon hislnr'-  cal pages, of the Empire, and her  revered and sacred memory shall be  tre.u-Hir.ed deep in the heirts of all who  dwell beneath the folds of the British  fl.iK.  ��������� Further Lodge Royalty would  humbly and respectfully tender its  heartfelt sympathy with the members  of the roval family of England^ now  suffering the anguish of bereavement.  ..Also will, we pray ..our Heavenly  Father that he will south and sustain  all who thus suffer.  . In Joying memory of our Queen  and  in sad token of the Empire's grief, our  lodge   charter shall  remain draped in  mourning for three months from   th  date.  Finally this message  of   condolence  shall be sent to  our Supreme  Grand  honorable! body shall be  1   to   transmit the  Hon.   Mr.   Wells,   Commissioner of  Lands and Works, is  n"t. quite   satisfied aboiil  the   re-uurces ' of   the   Big  Big Bend and be has a .good   mutt   in  view,   whom   he   intends   to send  there to report on it next    seu-on.  is a strange confession for   a   man  Mi. Well's position tii  make   that  has lived ou all these year.-in Kootenay  md yet knows nothing of a section,  which forms a big slice   of  the  very  district, which he himself is at present  repieseniing   at   Victoria.     However,  Mr. Well says he knows nothing ahoul  it and we are hound to believe him. He  was personally presented wilh" a copy  of   a   petition . froni ' the residents   of  Kevelstoke last "summer,   which   contained   a  good   deal  "of   userul    and  reliable information on this very point.  The Heraid presumes he novel  read  it.   In fact during his  last visit here  he stud that he had never seen il.   Yet  it was well worthy of  some attention  l'roiirMi',^VVells,-especiall.v-!is-his_(iwti  knowledge of the mutter is on his own  confession so limited.    Mr.   Wells says  he has got a good man in view to send  into Ihe Big Bend next   sea-on   to   le-  port on   it.     The .Herald   was   not  pieviously aware that leporls on 'lhe  mineral resources of any district came  under  Mr.   Well's   depaitmeiit.    Per  hups he meunt   to  say   thai, he   had  consulted    with     his     colleague,   the  Minister of   Mines, on   the  propriety  of sending I he Provincial Mineralogist,  in theie next season.    If   this   is the  case the Herald and   the   people  of  Revelstoke are fully   in   accord   with  Mr,   Well's    suggestion.     We    have  been trying to get   lhe   gentleman   in  question to go in Ihcre.lor ti long time  pust.     If, however, the-."good  unit) iu  view" means that Mr. Weill* thinks he  sees his way to creating a nice job for  one of his. East Kootenav supporters  next summer,   the   Herald   begs   to  enter a most   emphatic   protest.    We  have   already had   one of Mr.   Wells'  good men fni'sled on to us in a position  cri'dled for him and   paid   for   out   of  the   people's   money,   lor which there  was no necessity on earth. One useless  official appointed at five di'lliirs a day  to  do   work,   which   other and inure  competent  men   are ulreHdy   drawing  pay, for doing is enough   at one   time  foi this dislrict.    We want to   seethe  Big   Bend -developed  and we want to  see Mi'. Wells lend us a   hand   in   the  undertaking   hut   we   do not want to  see its development made a pretext for  creating jobs for Mr.   Wells\ political  following.  ...Still Greater Honey's Worth for You...  The bold liberal'offerings of our1,Great Clearing- Sale have created-a great  combiaation all over town. Everybody, seems to be talking about them and  guessing., Goodness knows, we have given them enough to talk about !

The hockey match played on  Satui*-,  night     at     the     link   between     tho  lievelstoke team   aud   a   seven   from  Ashcroft was rither a one sided affair  iu favor of the home team.

THE QUEfeN'S   DEATH  Iii--the-death of Quttrn Victoria the  greatest personality  of modern times  '���������uliasi-fiassed  away.    For G-l  years her  Influence  has  been  felt by .the  mil-  ���������ilions of people of toe British Empire  .nnd  it  is   now  almost impossible;  to  Jtielleve that tho    object of    so much  -fierotion and loyalty is    really dead.  Her Majesty's immunity from  Illness  ��������� during her Iocs reign has prevented  ���������ver subjects from contemplating    the  g>0S3rbility  of her  death  except in" a  vague  indefinite  way  and  the  shock  is   now  all    the  heavier.      It    will  always be a matter of pride and congratulation to Canadians that almost  ihe last public action of Her Majesty  was to receive the Canadian soldiers  at   -Windsor   Castle   nnd   personally  thank them for their services at the  war.   - Surs-ly it is one of    tho most  Impressive  scenes  in    history.      The  great Queen even then with thc hand  cf death upon her, greeting the loyal  Colonials while the tears    ran  down  Her face when she heard their story  of    death  and    wounds    and    isuffor-  itig.      It was  sxown to bo  Uie wish  of Queen   Victoria  th.it-there   might  net be anothor war during her reign.  Indeed   she  is reported to have told  the   prime   mtisistcr   shortly   before  the  commencement  of    hostilities  in  South Africa that another war would  kill  her, ?ud her words were    truly  prophetic.     She   is known    to have  suffered  great  grief  at thc  death  of  so .many vaiiant men  in   thc Transvaal   and    was    constantly  brooding  ever the war. The past year has been  full of trouble for tho Queen, and it is  no wonder  that hor  marvellous constitution broke down under the strain*  The  death   of  her  sou   thc  Duke  of  Saie-Co'oourg-Gotha   was    a   serious  Borrow to her, while the death-of her  tfavority     grandson,    and     incurable  illness of her eldest daughter tho Empress  Frederick increased  the strain.  ft is not too much lot-ay that Queen  Victoria was the greatest personality  of modern history.     It is simply im-  possible-tonestiffl"at9^tmr-extc;ht-of_liet-"  influence  which  was  always  exerted  for good.     Her death is hailed    with  6orrow and sadness not alone by her  "millions of subjects but by the whole  ct   thc   civilized  worid.      The   Victo-  . rlan era has been the most I'rogressive  epoch since tte worid began, aad the  Queen hc.-Ma.lf has ever been the central Rgure of it all. Sho has laid down  the burden of he.- year.-; and    honors  amid the tears of the civilized world.  Winnipeg   Prices    ,;  Winnipeg. .Jan.   19.

Incidents of common occurrence  whilo travelling ovor tho .prairies  beforo railroads superceded the Red  Hi ver carte and the bull teams, are  always of interest to many of.those  who have come since thon.  In 1881, a young fellow riding a  rather poor looking horse crossed the  river at McVicar'u Dust at dusk and  had not been long in. Grand Valley  before ho and a stranger were talking trade. Both aeomed somewhat  keen for a deal as thoy went towards  a stable, where by the light of a  match a rather fino looking pony was  shown. An oven deal was made and  the newly acquired horse saddled and  ridden over' the rivor, but thc night  by this time was dark as pitch, and  no trail led to thc solitary shack  that stood where Brandon now is. so  the only thing there seemed, to do  was to sit down and wait for light,  and when light camo the shack was  there, but whore, oh whoro. .was tho  'fine pony? Suro a.horsC'Was there,  hut Its skin seemed'"many sizes too  large, and was in.folds like that of a  rhlnocoi-os. and a worse caao of  mango could hardly be found. "Look  on the bright side of things." is advice often given, but. when trading  horses It ts well to look on the other  side.  ,- It wns at Brandon a few months  hitor that a youthful Britisher was  'seen driving a pony with Its collar  upside down, and it would not.be  surprising if this waa the ��������� samo in;  divldultl who was reported to havo  attempted to hitch an ox between tho  stilts'of the plow, and was hoard enquiring how much" bran should be  sown to the acre. But with such was  the country, to it largo extent, sottled.  and -many a- now prosperous-  farmer can just now recall such ludicrous mistakes. The determination  to ' succeed is deeply ingrained : in  somo natures and each failure furnishes a stone for thc foundation of a  successful career.  Settlement extended rapidly., beyond  Brandon to the Pile of, Bones and  Mooso Jaw-bone crooks,- but beyond  this stretch the great plains, whoro  for hundreds of miles, even yet, wo  only.find the'lonely rancher. In tho  mindst. of such plains a rlTer was a  welcome sight, hut crossing largo  streams, that wero too deep to ford,  was no easy work. A folding canvas boat. Which was carried with us,  was our ferry. First the load of a  cart was taken ovor, then tho cart  itself was balanced on the frail craft  and paddled across.' Then, when  these wore all on thc opposite bank  the horses would be made to swim  the   river.      In  the -neighborhood  of  Swift Current creek    thc last    large  hands of buffalo were seen, but stray-  animals appeared from time  to time  about Medicine Hat.and westward.  At that point  I  remembnr leaving  our party and with a pony and cart  making a lonely trip  To Fort Calgary.  Although it may be said that a person can drive Anywhere over the  prairie, a Red River-cart is not tho  most luxurious kind of carriage to do  it in. Without the slightest sign of  a trail for nearly 200 miles it was Jisr  jog, and hump, bump from morning  till night, then tother the' pony,  gather a few dry buffalo chips to boil  tho kettle of,.water, whicli .was taken  from ;i slough, it handy, or from the  little keg which was always carried,  ���������and after a cup of tea, a little pemi-  ciiu and hard tack, roll into a blanket  tinder  the  cm I.  This was the time to feel lonely,  although by no means alone, as was  proved by the howling of the coyote,  fhe swoop of an owl close overhead,  and the &!>' visits of the kit fox. The  last mentioned graceful little animal  is a veritable Puck of the prairie and  its nightly pranks were. a. source of  vexation a3 well as amusement. It  is rather startling to wake out of a  fitful si timber, to find a sharp noso  and ti pair of bright, eyes within a  few inches of' your' face. In the  morning it is probable that a boot  would be .missing, or some- straps  (���������liewyd oft' the harness, if at all within  reach of the imp.  My pony saved me from' a rather  airkawrd predisrament one r-vuning. I  threw off lhe harness shortly before  .sundown and rode to some low hills,  hoping to son water, but (vas disappointed. I then turned, as 1 thought  in the direction of tlio cart, but it  seemed as if it had b.-.:-n .spirited  away. i rode this way anj that is  -SFtiTch-^bMi^ar.iiricMig- f.f&r^lh~e~.inn  or painkiller, with a dash of black  strap tobacco, could be found,to irrigate the toddy bioeeoma, or furnish a  "���������mile" for the tenderfoot.  Supplies, of all kinds were brought  in by Baker nnd company from Helena and Benton on their large pralrio  schooners^' throe of which'wore usually coupled together and pulled by  a string of eight yoke, of oxen. The  load would be about 12 or 18 tons.to  tho tonm and thore might be half a  dozen of those string teams, with  their drivers, undors the control of a  boss, who, whon necessary would be  riding, ahead. ln search of the beet  crossing of a creek or locating a suitable spot for the location of a camp  for the night. The : Hudson Bay  company brought their goods by Ked  River cart from the Saskatchewan,  up which; they were carried by boat  when the water was high enough.   ;  Of course these methods of freighting and the long hauls resulted in  high-prices, such ns $8 and upwards  for a' sack of flour, and thrco pounds  of sugar or dried ��������� apples, or sowbelly for'a dollar.' -Beef was reasonable, at eight or nine cents,1' but  wan killed in a rather primitive manner, not conducive .to quality, the  beast was run down' on iho prairies  find shot line, a buffalo.  ."���������. nongBt tho t-crllei farmers Vn'ear  Calgary were thtt-e woll known old  tlnwrs.

The plouoor farmers had uot tlie  lat*:!)t..itu! n-ot-t Improved imple-  monfi or machinery to work with and  thoy followed tho���������anclo'nt way of  threshing by 'treading out 'tho gralu.  But they were progressive, and with  'thoadvenf of the railroad, we're seen  threshers, binders and sulky plows;  and about those plows a pilgrim  Briton was heard to remark: "I like  Uiose much bottah thnh those you  shove."  The West was at that time a land  of promise, and it has proved to bo  also a land- of fulfilment;   but most  of the genuine old timers, that Is, the  traders,    trappers, -. prospector  old  etc., have availed themselves of the  last services of tho "sky pilot" and  arc now "pushing clouds."

The long expectca duol between  the .Count de liiiborsac and Baron  Itobert de Rothschild was fought  with swords at 11 o'clock Sunday  morning on Karon Bdmon do Rothschild's estate at Boulogne sur Seine  Thc carriages with the principles,  seconds, doctors and a few friends arrived there from Paris shortly before  llo'r.lock.  Count do" LuberHiic's seconds were  M. Schege and Count de Loboide, and  those of Huron de Itothschlld were  Baron Loouino and Viscount do  Bondy.  The duel began at 11 o'clock and  lasted 10 minutes, ' when Count de  Lubersac received a lungo perforating his. arm. at the elbow, to the  armpit.     The duel was then stopped.  Both the count and the baron  fought most determinedly, 'neither  flinchsd. and neither showed ths  pligbt������?.st desire to spare tho other.  Sixteen engagements -took place, all  of a desperate character..;  The combatants attacked each other  furiously. Thn sleeves of their shirts  wero literally torn to pieces by the  points of their swords as the-duollists  repeatedly lunged at each other.  Several times thoy camo to close  quarters, nnd their seconds were-obliged to separate them.  At tho sixteenth onslaught Uarou  de Rothschild lunged at the count,  who tried to parry but fallod, and  the baron's sn-ord penettated the  arm, just above the elbow,' and issued  at thc armpit.  The specwtors hastened around thc  wounded man, and two. well know.i  physicians, Drs. Berger aud Poirrier,  (-.'cammed tbe wound.  They declared that the count's life  w:ts. uot in danger, but it was impossible to continue the duel. Count  tie Lubersac was then driven back to  Party.'
